Abstract

A watching brief was undertaken by Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) between late February and early March 2006 at Wigan, Lancashire (SD 357653 404886), on a series of geotechnical test pits. The work was commissioned by the Environment Agency and took place in advance of proposed improvments to the flood defence system along the River Douglas. Of the 37 geotechnical test pits that were opened, only two produced archaeological horizons. These were a cobbled surface and three courses of brick work. The form or function of the brickwork was not established due to the small sample size of the test pit aperture.
